My ice maker is jammed. I have taken apart the

My ice maker is jammed. I have taken apart the ice tray and believe I have figured out the problem. Would anyone have a diagram of how the ice tray should be put together. More specifically: The plastic cap at the back end of the ice tray should fit over the corkscrewed metal rod. Should the cap be centered over the end, or should it be offset? Thank you for any assistance you can provide.

    Problem solved. If anyone else comes across this issue... The plastic end piece that connects to the metal rod can come loose and jam. If the metal piece lodges across the plastic piece, then you need to pull the rod back so that just the small end bent section of the rod is in the plastic piece. The plastic piece should rest in the center of the metal rod end coil.

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.

There are three common problems with icemakers:

There's no ice
Small or too few ice cubes
Specks in the cubes

Ice maker tray will not rotate and dump ice. It tries to, but only moves very little. What can I do?

I am a retired service technician. There is a strong possibility that you have a jam. Often ice makers become jammed with cubes that have not dumped. I have also found a plastic sandwich bag that has jammed the ice maker. So, first inspect for a jam.
If there is no jam then the plastic gearing is broken in the motor module.
Hopefully it is just a simple jam.

Ice maker was jammed or not working so I pulled the tray out. Inside the tray was a plastic piece about 3 inches long with a piece of styrofoam on it. Inside the maker there is now a white cord han

Good Morning Friend,

I understand the ice maker was jammed on your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FGHB2844L. I also see that when you pulled the tray out, there was a 3 inch plastic piece with a piece of styrofoam on it. Now there is a white cord hanging inside the ice maker. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to determine what exactly is needed to repair your ice maker. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

I've had lots of problems with my Bosch refrigerator ice maker. The ice tray has a tab on the back corner that twists the tray when it cycle to empty the ice. That tab broke off and when I looked into replacing the ice tray the authorized Bosch dealer said the tray is only sold with the complete ice maker unit. Sells for about $160. I have a hard time spending $160 for another complete ice maker when I only need a $10 replacement ice tray. This ice maker is sub-par for an appliance name brand like Bosch.

Ice maker has ice in the tray, but will not dump or do anything

"Ice in the tray". Do you mean ice is in the well of the ice maker, or in the tray or bucket that collects the harvested cubes from the ice maker?
If the problem is the ice is in the ice maker well, and will not dump, then, if the ice maker is turned on, and the temperature in the freezer is 14 degrees or colder then the ice maker has failed.
In rare occasions an ice maker can be repaired but is rarely done, and is a repair only someone with strong working knowledge of ice makers can perform.
If you are handy with tools you can remove the icemaker. 3 screws and power plug. Once out you can check the well to see if something has jammed up the rake, but that's about all.

I believe the heater element beneath the ice maker is burned out. It always comes on just before the ice maker dumps the ice into the tray/storage. The parts are available but the problem is it will cost half as much to replace the parts as it would to replace it with a new one. If you want to do this I will help you so please let me know. Or if you need help in finding the problem I will help you. Just tell me what you would like to do. Thanks, Sea Breeze
